Hexed in Texas - Book coverWhen a Russian witch clashes with the capitalist heir of a voodoo queen, anything can happen!

Chaotic magic leaking from Alamo excavations brings these two unlikely rivals to Texas.

Baba Yaga has been around since--even she can’t remember when. She normally stays at home in her chicken-legged hut, grumpily awaiting visitors who come to her for help.

M. C. Laveau, the head of Laveau Pharmaceuticals,  merchandizes products that exploit the magic of her grandmother Marie (yes, that Marie).

Hapless bystander Rachel Vargas is caught in the middle, with unforeseen, alarming, and comical results.

Book 1 of the Baba Yaga Chronicles: pure fun!
